The West Islip varsity football team opens its season at home against Smithtown West at 4 p.m. on Thursday.
The buzz in in the air. Could this be West Islip's year? The top-seeded and undefeated Lions were stunned in the first round of the county playoffs by West Babylon last year, but Lions quarterback Sam Ilario was playing that game with a torn ankle tendon. Illario is back at full strength and ready to help lead the Lions to victory this season.
